GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - After sweeping the diving events in Saturday's Senior Day dual meet against Milwaukee, Green Bay senior Mitchell Spaeth (Fredonia, Wis.) was selected as the Horizon League Men's Diver of the Week for Jan. 28-Feb. 3, the conference office announced Tuesday. It marks the first weekly award in Spaeth's career.

Spaeth won both boards in convincing fashion in his final home meet, taking the 3-meter event with a career-best score of 342.07 and winning the 1-meter event with a season-best total of 313.13.

"Mitchell's steady performances this season are a culmination of his personal commitment to becoming a better athlete in each of his four seasons at Green Bay," diving coach Tom Stover said. "He maximizes his time and energy to focus on doing things the right way in each and every practice. He has learned to analyze each dive and put that insight to work, making himself better each time he gets on the boards."

Spaeth and the Phoenix have three weeks off from competition and will return to action at the 2013 Horizon League Championships in Chicago Feb. 27-March 2.
